Rivard leads Harvard to rout of Yale

Last season Harvard lost two one-point games at Yale's Lee Amphitheater: one to the Bulldogs that cost the Crimson an outright league title and the other to Princeton that cost them a trip to the NCAA tournament.

On Friday night, Harvard made sure there would be no heartbreaking finish. Laurent Rivard scored 18 points and the Crimson routed Yale, 65-35, to remain unbeaten in league play.

Steve Moundou-Missi added 10 points for Harvard (17-2, 3-0 Ivy), which led 30-19 at the half and was never threatened in the second 20 minutes.

Greg Mangano led the way for Yale (12-5, 2-1) with 17 points. No teammate had more than four points as Harvard's defense made life miserable for the Bulldogs, who shot 32 percent and turned over the ball 22 times. Yale was held to less than half its average of 75.4 points per game.

Harvard is back in action Saturday (6 p.m.) at Brown.

Rondo, Allen, O'Neal, Dooling out for C's

The Celtics will once again be without three starters when they play the Pacers on Friday night. Rajon Rondo will miss his fifth straight game with a sprained right wrist, while Ray Allen is also out with a sprained ankle and Jermaine O'Neal has a bone bruise on his left knee. Additionally, Keyon Dooling has a hip pointer after he fell hard on the floor in his return from a knee injury on Thursday.

O'Neal said the swelling in his knee has gone down and he hopes to be able to play on Sunday. Allen could also play Sunday if things go well in a workout on Saturday.

"I wanted to play [Friday,]" Allen said. "I shot today and I felt pretty good shooting but I still have a little clogginess in my left angle. I think it's a little weak."

Allen did not travel to Orlando and was with his wife Shannon who delivered a son, Wystan Ryan on Thursday.

Source: Red Sox, John Maine agree to deal

A major league source confirmed a report in the Fredericksburg Freelance-Star that the Red Sox have agreed to terms with pitcher John Maine on a minor league deal. Contrary to the report, however, the deal does not include an invitation to big league camp.

The team scouted Maine and views him as a good, no-risk bounceback candidate as a starter or reliever. The pitcher's agent, Rex Gary, told the newspaper that the Red Sox are eyeing using the 30-year-old as a reliever despite Maine having made 105 of his 108 major league appearances as a starter with both the Orioles and Mets. Maine hasn't pitched in the major leagues since 2010, when he made nine starts for the Mets. After undergoing shoulder surgery in '10, the righty signed a minor league deal with the Rockies, leading to 11 starts (1-3, 7.43 ERA) with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He would leave team voluntarily in...

Only Gronk missing at Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski was the only player not spotted as the team practiced in full pads in their final Foxboro practice of the season. The tight end missed his second straight day of practice with a left ankle injury, an injury his father told a Western New York TV station was a high ankle sprain. 

Gronkowski suffered the injury late in the third quarter against the Ravens when safety Bernard Pollard tackled him and fell on the ankle, twisting it beneath him. Gronkowski's father said the tight end will be "fine" to play in the game. 

The Patriots will move their operation to Indianapolis on Sunday when they arrive for Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5 in Indianapolis.

Full coverage of Super Bowl XLVI can be heard on Sportsradio WEEI 93.7 beginning on Super Sunday at 4 p.m. ET.  For complete coverage, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog...
